Music sets a mood. A tone. Evokes emotion. A melody carries us elsewhere. Lyrics speak our mind and heart. While I don’t often listen to music while writing, I do listen and let it inspire me when I’m not at the computer. Some of my best scenes have come to me while listening to a song. When writing a book—before, during, and after—I create a Spotify playlist for the book. My taste is eclectic. If your taste in music is eclectic too, maybe you’ll enjoy these playlists. Maybe you’ll also recognize the themes of my novels in the melodies and lyrics you hear.
